Nigerians on social media have lashed out at Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari after she took to her social media page to post photos of her daughter-in-law’s graduation from a university in the United Kingdom.
The wife of the President shared the photos of Zahra Buhari, who is her son, Yusuf’s wife, graduating with a first class on her official Facebook page on Tuesday.
Her post comes amidst a lingering strike of university lecturers, which has seen students blocking major highways, the Lagos airport in protest.
Social media users have also labelled her post as insensitive. A popular Twitter user, Henry Shield said, “Thousands of students are at home because our schools are shut, but 1st Lady Aisha Buhari is sharing pictures of her graduating family member. This isn’t about being insensitive, Aisha has drunk a full dose of the visible madness that has disconnected Aso Rock from the people.”
Another tweep, 21 Genius said, “Aisha Buhari is one of the biggest hypocrites we have. She had the mind to post her daughter graduating from a foreign university despite ASUU meeting still deadlocked. The Buhari family have to be the most insensitive and shameless people ever!”
Onyii Kalu Umex said, “Aisha Buhari is bold! It takes some level of guts to celebrate your daughter’s graduation in the midst of over eight months ASUU strike. I salute her for deciding to rub it in at the most fragile moment.”
Reposting the first lady’s post, Dr Kel tweeted, “But the children of Mr Emeka Opeyemi Ahmed have been home for how long again because of ASUU strike? Dear Aisha Buhari, please rub it in our faces. We are your powder.”

The children of the main voters who brought this government into power are languishing in IDP camps and their daughters held captive by terror gangs.

Buhari shaded tears before coming to power that he is having great pity for the common man . Today, the common man is the one shading tears profusely after giving Buhari power
